For centuries, fashion has drawn on nature both for its raw materials, and for design inspiration. In recent years, with the advent of fast fashion, its reliance on fossil fuel-derived synthetic fibres and a linear 'take, make, waste', globalised production model, Fashion and Nature are increasingly out of balance. Visitors will have the opportunity to participate in hands-on activities that explore the rich, shifting, and increasingly precarious relationship between fashion and nature, taking inspiration both from the fashions of the past, and the vast collection of natural objects on display in the museum, to reimagine what we think fashion in balance with nature could look like, both now, and in the future.
